Don´t Focus On Your Limitations

 

(Exodus 4:10) “Then Moses told the LORD, ‘Please, LORD, I’m not eloquent. I never was in the past nor am I now since you spoke to your servant. In fact, I talk too slowly and I have a speech impediment.’”

(John 5:6-7) “When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, he asked him, ‘Do you want to get well?’ The sick man answered him, ‘Sir, I don’t have anyone to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up. While I’m trying to get there, someone else steps down ahead of me.’”

 

 

All of us have some kind of insecurity, something that stops us from moving forward, and from believing that we can achieve more in life. These insecurities or limitations can be a physical deformation, a mental obstacle, an emotional or chemical imbalance in our body, being short, overweight, being too hairy, having a large nose, coming from a poor family, not having a proper education…etc.

No matter what your handicap is, the devil will use it to bring you down and kill your dreams while God can use it to lift you up above others and bring glory to His name. It’s your choice who’s voice you are going to listen to. The one who keeps you in chains or the one who makes you soar like an eagle? In God’s hands, you will be an inspiration for others who need to be encouraged.

Moses was called by God to speak to Pharaoh and to set the Hebrew people free from slavery. But Moses looked at his inability to speak clearly and used that as an excuse for God’s invitation. So God provided his brother, Aaron, to speak on behalf of Moses.

No matter what excuse you give God, once He has chosen you for greatness, He won´t let you sit and feel sorry for yourself. If you are someone that has accepted Christ to be your Lord and Savior, then be assured that God has chosen you and will not let you sit within your limitations.

When the paralytic man in John 5 was asked by Jesus if he wanted to be healed, the paralytic did not say yes. But, instead, he only focused on his handicap and gave reasons why he was not able to receive healing.

In 2 Samuel 4, we have the story of King Saul’s grandson, Miphiboseth, who was crippled. He lived life scared, in hiding, and in misery because He thought that king David was his enemy. However, he was surprised to learn that King David had made a covenant with his father, Jonathan that he would take care of his children. Eventually, Miphiboseth lived the rest of his life eating at the king’s table in luxury.

 


We encourage you to watch the testimony of Vinod Rawat “From Crutches to Christ”. A crippled man who refused to listen to Satan and was transformed by the power of Christ.

    How true we cannot allow our weaknesses or shortcomings to stop us doing the will of God
